River’s State Governor Nyesom Wike has advised the former President of Nigeria Goodluck Jonathan not to fall for the enticement of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and rather remain at the PDP.
Speaking in an interview on BBC Pidgin he noted that the PDP is a better political party for the former President to run as President in 2023 if he is willing to do so.
Wike opined that the APC is doing its best to lure some PDP members to its side but he says the party is only offering destruction.
He mentioned that when he meets the former President he will let him know that the APC people are trying to destroy his reputation because they don’t like him and that’s something he should note.
“If I see the former President, I will tell him what I heard. I will tell him, ‘Don’t go anywhere because these people want to destroy your reputation. They don’t like you; you should know.
He stressed that the APC is deliberately bringing reputable people from the PDP just to destroy them so they wouldn’t know where to go again.
“What APC is doing now is to bring reputable people from PDP, and when they bring them, they destroy them so that they won’t have anywhere to go again. That’s what the APC is doing.
“I respect the former President because he is a man of integrity but if I am to advise him, I will tell him, ‘Sir, don’t make that mistake. If you want to run for President, run under PDP. Nigerians cherish you more than this government. They have seen that all the things the (Buhari) government promised them are lies. So, please don’t join the APC for the sake of your reputation,’ he added.
